Testimonial from Olly and Lizzie Levett
Born to Boogie were a great addition to our wedding and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. None of our guests could resist the temptation to dance along and the band and dance floor were full of energy all evening from the first song to the final encore. Such a professional set up from all the organisation ahead of the event to liaising with the venue and on the night itself. Thanks so much for being such a memorable part of our wedding.Sent on 25/03/2020

“Thank you so much for being such a wonderful band at Sarah and Abeed's wedding. You were amazing!! There wasn't a moments delay in getting everyone on to the dance floor and staying there all night. The old favourites had everyone singing along. You're My Best Friend for Sarah and Abeed's oh so romantic first dance was delightful. You truly were central to making it such a special day for everyone. Thank you.”Sent on 25/01/2020
